3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled, 33cl, brewed Nov 2004, alc. 10.2%
Dark brown color, good creamy tanned head. Aroma is plummy with fresh lemony notes and a bit of hay. Medium to full bodied. Yeast is dominating behind that chocolate with hints of rye and licorice. Liquerish palate.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark redbrown coloured beer, nice head, lots of floaties. Sweet malty aroma, raisin and some alcohol coming through. Strange, complex flavor, starts off fairly sweet but gets (metallike?)sharp towards the end, with tart and bitter notes. Some dark fruits. Interesting, but doesn’t seem to be too wellbalanced.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Cookie, caramel and raisin aroma which is sweet but complex. Very nice. Ruby color, beige head, good lace. Disappointing flavor, light sweet, pretty bitter and quite hoppy as to be expected by De Molen, light fruity. Thin start and alcohol well hidden.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Brewery tap. Orange brown color, slightly cloudy. Sherry in the aroma. Bittersweet flavor, the beer must be massively hopped, but also a malty sweetness. Hints of orange, cream sherry, butter and plums. Less body as expected.
